DA PAM 21-30 Our Red Army Ally 1945-04-23.
"TO THE AMERICAN SOLDIER — The purpose of the first part of this booklet is to introduce you to the Red Army soldier — the everyday "G.I." of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. You have heard and read a lot about him, now you are seeing and meeting him personally. He is your friend. He is your ally. He has fought hard in this war, just as you have, to bring about a United Nations victory. The meeting of troops of the United States Army and of the Red Army is an historical occasion. It is the first time in history that so many citizens of the United States have met face-to-face with so many citizens of the USSR." Digitized by Google books.
